When posting New York State pictures on Monday, I knew it wouldn’t be complete without a picture of Niagara Falls. So, Hubby, Max and I hopped into the car a few weeks ago and took the trip up to the Falls for some pictures. Like many people who live very close to Niagara Falls, we don’t go very often – the visit is usually reserved for when company comes to town. I keep forgetting just how majestic the Falls are! Since if was a cold, blustery day, there weren’t that many visitors, and so I could take a lot of photos unimpeded!
Welcome to Niagara Falls!
The dedication and map are at the Park entrance. Niagara Falls Park is the oldest state park in the United States.
The Niagara River rapids that lead up to the American Falls.
There really is a crisis hotline phone located at the end of the Niagara River, just before the Falls form. I sincerely hope it has saved a lot of jumpers. People do not survive jumping over the American Falls.
The American Falls.
This is a picture of the Canadian skyline. Is it any wonder people prefer the Falls from the Canadian side? This is what the American side gets to look upon.

The little white specs are birds.

You took some great photos! Wowsers. What a beautiful place.
Thanks Skirnir! Maybe that new camera does have magical properties?
Nice photos Ann. Max is always so cute.
I thinking I might have to extend my next vacation – – –
If you are ever in the area Gail, do take the time to see the Falls. They are truly beautiful.

Great pictures. I especially love seeing that little Max is happily walking with Dad. Hope he’s still feeling okay!
